Dermal Fillers — Look Years Younger in Mere Minutes

Over time, you watch as your face succumbs to the signs of aging, including deep lines on the lower half of your face and volume loss under your eyes and in your cheeks. While it may have taken years for these signs to develop, we can erase them in just minutes with dermal fillers.

There are many reasons why dermal fillers rank number two in minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in the United States (just behind Botox® and its counterparts). 

In this month’s blog post, Dr. Khongruk Wongkittiroch, Dr. Matthew Zarraga, and the rest of the skin care team here at Z-Roc Dermatology review the top reasons dermal fillers are so popular, starting with how quickly they work.

Turning up the volume in an instant

One of the great appeals of dermal fillers is that we can smooth out deep lines and fill in volume in key areas in just minutes.

At our practice, we use industry-leading fillers from Juvéderm®, Revanesse VERSA HA®, and Restylane®, all of which rely on hyaluronic acid (HA) to add volume to your face. Your body naturally produces HA, which retains moisture in your tissues.

With these products, we inject HA into areas that can use some volume, and your results are immediate. This means you can walk out looking years younger than when you first walked in.

Meeting many goals

Another reason fillers are a great go-to cosmetic tool is that they tackle a number of different issues, including:

Wherever deep lines have developed, or you’ve lost volume, the odds are good that dermal fillers can help.

Results that last

Our dermal fillers last about four months and often longer, depending on how quickly your body processes the HA. The great news is that once your results start to fade, you can return for a quick round of injections to restore your great results in just minutes.

If you want longer-lasting results, we offer a different type of dermal filler called Sculptra®, an FDA-approved injectable that replaces lost collagen. With Sculptra, we inject poly-L-lactic acid, which stimulates collagen production, giving you natural-looking results that can last two years or more.

If you want to determine whether dermal fillers are right for your cosmetic goals and which ones will work best, we invite you to schedule an appointment. Once we review your goals, we develop the best treatment plan and get to work right away.

To get started, please contact our office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to schedule an appointment.
